Daily Minyan – June 12, 2009


On this date in 1939 – The greatest-ever gathering of

members and future inductees of the Baseball Hall of Fame

assembles in Cooperstown, N.Y., for the dedication of the

museum: Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Walter

Johnson, Grover Alexander, Nap Lajoie, George Sisler, Eddie

Collins, Tris Speaker, Cy Young and Connie Mack accept

their plaques.

 

  

Let’s see if any of our guys delivered a Hall of Fame performance.   

 

Brad Ausmus, C – Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers had an off day yesterday. 

 

Ryan Braun, OF, 3B – Milwaukee Brewers

Ryan once again had a big day, going 3-for-5, hitting a 3-run

homer (#13), and throwing out Rockies SS Troy Tulowitski

trying to stretch a double into a triple.  His homer brought the

Brewers within one run of the Rockies, but Mat Gamel struck

out with a Prince Fielder at first.  He was a busy boychik!!

 

Troy Tulowitski being called out at 3rd on Ryan’s throw.

 

His average rose to .318.

 

Craig Breslow, P – Oakland A’s

Craig didn’t pitch in the A’s win over the Twins. 

 

Scott Feldman, P – Texas Rangers

Scott is slated to pitch over the weekend at home against the

Dodgers. 

                 

John Grabow, P, Pittsburgh Pirates

John didn’t pitch in the Pirates win over the Braves.  

               

Gabe Kapler, OF – Tampa Bay Rays

Gabe didn’t play in the Rays’ big win over the the Angels

 Angels of Anaheim.

  

Ian Kinsler, 2B – Texas Rangers

Ian went 0-for-4 and struck out twice in the

Rangers 1-0 victory over the Blue Jays.  His

average continues to sink and now is at .265.

 

Jason Marquis, P – Colorado Rockies

Jason is slated to pitch at home versus the

Mariners.

  

Scott Schoeneweis, P – Arizona Diamondbacks

Scott is currently dealing with the unexpected loss of  his

wife.  My prayers are with him. 

                 

Kevin Youkilis, 1B, 3B – Boston Red Sox

Youk went 1-for-3, and guess what?  Yes, he

walked again!!  Now you know why he was

called “The Greek God of Walks.” He didn’t

score or drive anybody in.  His average

remained at .350.
